Task Bank

Task Bank

The goal of the MCIEA Task Bank is to provide models of high-quality performance tasks, rubrics, and curriculum planning documents from educators in MCIEA districts. Sharing across schools will illustrate the ways MCIEA educators are using performance assessment to measure in multiple ways the deeper thinking skills that we want our students to learn and demonstrate. The MCIEA Task Bank depends on educator willingness to share with each other!

Students are planning a container garden with one plot for themselves and one for a friend. They will conduct self-reflection and interviews around veg preferences. Based on the data they collect they will plan a garden for themselves and their friend. They will be asked to compare, using fractions, perimeter, and area, the garden they planned to their neighbor’s garden. After the comparison, students will reflect on the choices they made throughout the task.
